Charter Development / Running A Charter

Event Phase

Source Starfinder #40: Planetfall pg. 44
In the Event phase, a random event might affect your charter or a single settlement or hex within your charter.

Step 1: Check For An Event

Source Starfinder #40: Planetfall pg. 44
There’s a 15% chance a charter event occurs each turn. If no event occurred on the previous charter turn, increase the chance for an event this turn by 15%, to a maximum of 90%. Once an event occurs, the percentage chance resets to 15% for the following turn. If an event occurs, roll a d20 and check the Event Table on page 48 to see what event occurs.

Step 2: Event Resolution

Source Starfinder #40: Planetfall pg. 44
Most events ask you to compare one of your charter’s traits to a Threshold Number. Generally, if your charter doesn’t meet the Threshold Number, it takes a temporary penalty, but if the charter rises to the challenge, it will see a benefit. In some cases, events can present opportunities for the PCs to deal with a situation not covered in these rules. These events are described on pages 48–49.
